    LARGE Plywood Tank Build

    Well, I guess an "update" from my side is due. Unfortunately there is no progress here except for laying out the glass for the 2nd sump.

    LARGE Plywood Tank Build

    Tank is lookin' great. I went down there tonight for a few hours and helped clean up the garage. Hopefully the glass for the sumps will be here soon so I can get those built and we can get the OM and all the pumps done. The 11' of view is something awesome to see.
